The Shuswap is named after the Shuswap First Nations – The Secwepemc – an important Salish Nation comprising 17 Bands, whose ancestors lived in South-Central British Columbia. Today, four First Nations bands live in the Shuswap region: the Adams Lake Indian Band, Neskonlith Indian Band, Splatsin First Nation and Little Shuswap Indian Band.
Salmon Arm is a small city, but it has all the amenities you are looking for.

The City also boasts a unique, picturesque downtown which draws tourists from around the world.
Proximity to markets is among the City’s many competitive advantages as it provides ready-access to provincial, nationa and international marketplaces.
